Inscription
Built for the African American Community in 1874 as a school for children in the Loreley area and as home to this "benevolent" society, founded in 1872. Beginning in the late 18th century, such mutual aid societies, often formed by church congregations, were part of a national humanitarian movement to provide emergency assistance to members in times of sickness, accident and death, and to benefit communities through social, commercial and political networks.
